Indigo Woods East runs east to west from the Halifax River to the ocean and is home to a selection of single-family homes for those who love to be on the beach. You can't beat the endless sunshine and 90 degree weather here for spending hours on the sand or in one of the nearby parks.
However, if you want a dog park or a pet supply store, you should plan to drive back into the mainland side of town. If you like the AAA Daytona Tortugas, you can catch games all summer long at the Jackie Robinson Memorial Park. If NASCAR is more your speed, you are only a short drive from the Daytona Beach International Speedway, also known as "the birthplace of speed."
While summers here are amazing, don't forget that the winters are even better with daytime temperatures in the 50s! This weather is perfect for taking Fido out for walks.
When it comes to finding terrain for you and your pup to take your daily walks on, you have your choice of the many residential blocks around you. Most have sidewalks and give you the option of going as far as you want on any given day. You can even create walking routes that are as simple or complex.
Daily walks for your pup are more than just a chance to go potty and are one of the best ways for them to get the exercise they need. Thankfully, you have plenty of room to keep your walks varied and interesting.
Just remember that during the summer months, your shoes keep the bottoms of your feet safe from the scorching heat of the sidewalk, but Fido has only their paws to walk on. Keep your walks to early in the morning before the paved surface becomes too hot and uncomfortable to your pup's sensitive paws.
Living here puts you right next door to the 23 miles of pristine white sands on Daytona Beach. The dry sand close to A1A makes for some pretty strenuous walking and is a great way to get in some serious exercise. At the same time, you can walk next to the surf as this is much easier walking for both of you and you get the benefit of being able to cool off in the water!
If a walk in the woods is more your speed, it's only a short drive to Tomoka State Park. At one point in time, the area here served as home to the Timucuan Indians as can be seen from the 1,500-year-old remains of a village built at the headwaters of the Tomoka River. This is where there was a seemingly endless supply of fish! It also offers a half-mile long walking trail for you and your pup to check out.
